Hello Natasha and Everyone!
Thanks for this message. You are not doing anything wrong ;-))

Recently I asked Steve to program some additional ways to copy signs  
into SignPuddle. For example, now we can copy a sign from SignText,  
and we can copy entire SignText documents. Those new features were  
done a week ago...

And now Steve is working on another wonderful feature related to  

I believe in the process of doing this new programming, the way the  
old Copy Sign feature works has changed a little. I didn't realize  
this myself until yesterday, when it happened to me too...but it still  
works...Let me explain.

1. Click on the Copy Sign button
2. The screen asks you what puddle you want to copy to...make a choice
3. Then the screen asks what name you want to give it...give it a  
name...push the Add button
4. To the right of the newly copied sign, push the Write Sign button  
to change the sign...

So you can still do it, just in a new way...I will ask Steve about how  
this happened, but I think it works well anyway, and the one problem  
is updating the manuals, but that i will be doing next week anyway!

Thanks for telling us, Natasha -

Val ;-)
